Any one can get bullied just by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Bullies generally look for:
Anyone who they think is different - whether it’s their looks, weight, accent, clothing or interests. Bullies often target people based upon disability, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and religion.
They choose people who are isolated, and appear weaker, or are smaller, younger, fearful, or lacking confidence are more easily targeted.
Popular targets are children who get upset or cry easily and kids who are not athletic or do well in gym.
Perhaps most importantly is silence. They choose people who don’t stand up, who don’t report, who don’t have positive bystanders to help. They suffer, in silence.
Please contact me, or our team, for help in prevention. I bring 20 years experience working with bullies, victims, and bystanders, as a counselor, self defense teacher to help in anyway that I can.
